Last Saturday we went down to Cinerama for the Science Fiction Short Film Festival, which was pretty cool. We went to both 2 hour sessions, for a total of 20 films. Short collections are always hit or miss, but there were enough neat ones that it was definitely worth it. The program sold out, which is awesome. Plus, it’s so rare that we can see them on the big screen.
Less awesome was Firewall, which was free and still wasn’t particularly worth it, even though the villain was my boyfriend, Paul Bettany. The really sad thing is that I had low expectations and was still very “meh” about the whole deal. Very tired concept made more so by tired writing and direction, and the perhaps unintended hilarity of a getaway on Highway 2. Whatever.
